Casa Artusi is the very first centre of gastronomic culture to be established, devoted entirely to Italian home cookery.
Casa Artusi was founded in the name of cultured gastronomist from Forlimpopoli, Pellegrino Artusi (Forlimpopoli 1820-Florence 1911), who can be found in many homes, both in Italy and abroad, through his manual La Scienza in Cucina e l’Arte di Mangiar Bene (Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well).
Casa Artusi, built through restructuring work carried out on the monumental complex of a church, Chiesa dei Servi, stretches out over 2800 square metres split into different areas with a range of functions, all dealing with different aspects of gastronomic culture. Casa Artusi – library, restaurant, cookery school, wine cellar, bookshop, museum and location for events - is a living museum to home cookery.
